    MAE ALL...

    Mick...dumb and dumber, that just about sums it up doesn't it. It's going to be a nightmare eliminating Huwaei's 5G access, glad I'm not involved. LOL Did get an invite to a bridge game last night which was much appreciated after the day I put in with work. Sorry to hear your friend is going downhill, so sad. And of course a history lesson....St Swithins day. Keep us posted on the next 39 days! So your next chore will be replacing the back scenery? Don't be too quick to approve of our PM. He is currently under investigation by the ethics commission for the 3rd time!

    Pauly...the PM used to be a Drama Teacher, he should have stayed in that profession. Agreed he's not hard to look at but is starting to show signs of entitlement. I don't care how good looking you are, I hate entitlement people. You should pick yourself up a little hibachi grill, small and portable. Unfortunately I think things are going to get worse before they get better in the US. No wonder all these programmers make money, those game apps are really addictive. I've seen a couple of mask incidents in the news. The latest one a 72 year old man was killed by police. OMG Good luck with the turkey burgers, let me know how they turn out.

    (Going to save my post at this point as I don't want to loose it. Will continue in a minute.)

    Det...good job on sneaking out to Mandalay Bay, bet girly was happy. Glad you learned your lesson about sunburns. Good luck with renewing your passport, I know it can be a hassle sometimes. School is gong to be difficult for everyone this year but at least our online system isn't too bad. I'm not the best for suggesting dinner ideas, I leave that up to Pauly. LOL

    Pi...when I would get drinking thoughts I'd stop and make my "Mick List". Simple 2 column Pro/Con and sometimes would just do it in my head while sitting outside the liquor store. It works. I think mainly because it gives me that pause before reacting. You can do this girl. I finished my Grisham book and am now onto a new author Hank Phillippi Ryan. First time I've read her and this one is about Lawyers. I usually read "who dun it's" and "murder mysteries". Hope the vet visit goes smoothly.

    Time to grab some lunch and get ready for my 1pm meeting. Boss emailed me this morning asking if I'd have time after the meeting to discuss logistics while he's gone. I should have said no. LOL Have a great Thursday all....PPQP

    Good evening Abbers!

    Got my car vacuumed & cleaned out today - no more dog hair & little boy stink, haha!
    Slightly cooler due to a cloud cover all day & that’s OK! Rain coming tomorrow morning i think.

    Pauly. I make turkey burgers all the time, haven’t bought ground beef in at least 15 years. I just add an egg, S&P, finely minced onion & garlic & a splash of Worcestershire sauce. They’re good & much more digestible for me. Hope you like them too!

    Pie, what’s bugging you that’s making you want to drink? Whatever it is alcohol probably won’t help & we know how much damage it can do. What else can you do to make yourself feel better
    I’ve had my dog to the vet for a visit like that. It was weird but worked out fine.

    Mick, sorry about your friend, I hope he’s being kept comfortable. It’s definitely a hard thing to watch someone’s decline like that.
    I’m sure your railway scenery looks a lot better than you think!

    PQ, we would certainly be happy to take your PM off your hands. You can even have ours for a while, LOL
    Have you ever heard of Dr Martin’s lima beans? YB bought two seeds from the Amish store, planted them & they are now producing limas. You’re supposed to get bushels from each plant, haha. I guess we’ll be freezing them at some point!! Hope your afternoon was good!

    I’m running outside to do some trimming before it gets dark. Have a nice night all!

    Lav

    fairness should outweigh national security they say ....really? how about fairness to everyone else!! I honestly despair at times! take care all have a good weekend

    The acting profession are fearful that some theatres may never open again after lockdown.

    Why do they have to make a song and dance about everything?.

    I got sacked from my job at the undertakers as I was always late for work. I'm just not a mourning person.

    Greetings foks!

    Still hot & humid as hell but the next few days are supposed to be even worse so I guess I’ll save my bitching, haha!!

    Mick, here’s the lima bean info: https://www.backyardgardener.com/pla...ins-lima-bean/
    YB has the two he planted growing up a high fence so be prepared!!
    I do use a good bit of W. Sauce - it flavors just about anything you’re cooking & is not as salty as soy sauce & others. Glad your train work is in progress.
    YB is leaving tomorrow before 5 am, picking up our son & an Amish guy who needs a ride to a business in Virginia! That business is closing & he wants to go buy up all their supplies that he can use for his own business. That’s an 800 mile roundtrip so our son is going to share the driving. I just couldn’t work up any interest, haha!! I’ll be happier here hiding in the AC

    Well hello to the rest of the group & hope everyone is OK. Have a nice night all!

    Re: Abbers July 12-18 2020

    Hidy ho ABeroooonies!!

    back from 4 shoots that went pretty well, except it's too windy to do my drone shots.

    Lav, I really like lima beans and fava beans. Gret hummus or just on their own with garlic butter. Haven't yet tried the old Roman tradition of
    eating them raw dipped in olive oil. sounds a bit rough for my digestion with such a lectin load. Hope the fridge contents are salvageable.

    Pauly, yer still doing the hair gig or something else?

    had a couple folks relapse recently at our local Refuge group. I'ts a really trying time for everyone and i get that. Just doing my best to be a good text pal for those
    struggling beyond their limits. I had a mild drinking urge on the drive home but managed to go grocery shopping instead. Retail therapy cures all! LOL

    Thankfully I've got loads of work on which is good timing since I bit the bullet and dropped 1,100.00 on a new camera lense. Thankfully that lense is helping to pay
    for itself

    Made it to the gym a couple more times this week which is awesome. Sure a good feeling and Darlene even got girly to go last night and she liked it. yay!

    PPQ, agreed....things are going to get way, way worse on several levels here before there's any signs of serious improvement. A lot of the world is already toughened up to the point
    where they can deal with adversity and austerity pretty well but not the US. We have too many thin-skinned people that freak out over the tiniest of obstacles. It's a shame but a
    predictable byproduct of so many years of prosperity I suppose. Some PHD dude published an analysis showing we have 28 million Americans that are likely to become fully homeless in the
    following months. holy crap...not great. I'd love to think some hero will show up on a magical flying horse and answer our prayers but I think that would be a long fruitless wait.

    2 shoots on Sat and then passport appointment. then prolly the gym. zoom zoom but all good stuff.

    Mick, train pics? it's been a while as I recall. Glad your back at it. Mental defecting this weekend?

    Pie, hang in there! if somethings bugging you try and write it out on paper. I find that helps to regain perspective and priorities.
    and feel free to bend our ears!

    ok, more editing of pics and then gym, and then.... something for dinner.

    be well loves!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...aw I was hoping St Swithin would be right. At least when it's raining it must be cooler in the loft for your train work. I got a feeling most of the US is going to end up being locked down. Some in Canada want the border closed for the rest of the year. So is Julie basically back to work on a regular basis? I agree about our PM being very sensible when it comes to his daily briefings (which have slowed down now) and always deferring to the specialists. Nope the investigation isn't over the pipeline. He awarded a charity called "WE" a $900M project to roll out a youth job program saying nobody else was capable of doing it. Turns out he, his wife and his mother all get paid by "WE" for speaking engagements. Also the Finance Minister's daughters both work for "WE". It's quite the scandal at the moment because the "WE" charity backed out and now they're being investigated. Had a glance at the link, will read it more thoroughly later.

    Lav...went into the office today to set up my workstation and when I walked outside I thought what is this? Oh, it's humidity! LOL With all the pop up rain and thunderstorms we've had along came the humidity. You'd just laugh at me if you felt my humidity. Nice that you'll have the place to yourself tomorrow, enjoy.

    Det...you're sounding really good these days. Sorry to hear about the Refuge relapses but it's not surprising. This is a very hard time for anyone with addiction issues, no matter what they are. I confess I have started smoking again. It feels like I'm on hold waiting for something to change. Maybe with getting back to the office on a regular basis even with the building still closed will help me to think about quitting again. Not going to push it right now. I'm glad your able to get to the gym more often, it agrees with you.

    Bridge game starting in a few minutes so must get ready and signed in. Wishing everyone a peaceful evening....PPQP

NOT.BUY! Taste like shit! Can't believe SnoopDog is pedaling that crap,it's really gross,Pie I say like the others,think it out,reach out,Det I read an article about soooooo many people relapsing during all of this,not just Al but their drug of choice,alot of people have too much time on their hands and boredom 2 main things addicts don't do well with! I haven't had any "hanging by a thread" days but yea it's snuck its way into my thoughts I ain't gonna lie,just don't want to get sick and it's too hot for a hangover! Much love to Mick and Lav the whole gang,hope we all have a fabulous BF day!

    And good afternoon everybody hope all is well it's pouring down with rain here surprise surprise but apart from that very quiet the new lockdown measures of startup in Rochdale so let's hope they managed to get the numbers down it's been a quiet day doing a bit more work on the railway if anyone had of told me years ago but I would spend 4 days building scenery on a model I would have thought they're nuts the garden is going well with all the rain, and the front lawn is looking good yes times are difficult for us all and we need to be alert to the triggers 4 booze none of us are bulletproof so it doesn't do any harm just to re invoke your resilience against alcohol I'm making tea tonight so best I'm going to start..... kippers roast potatoes and peas take care all

    A Greek man is on the run, wanted for the murder of a woman with a dip, spread, or savory dish made from cooked and mashed chickpeas, blended with tahini, lemon juice, and garlic.

    Police have confirmed this as the worst form of hummuside they've ever seen.

    I got drunk and chatted up this bird down the pub.
    "You remind me of Bob Dylan," she said.
    "What?" I replied, "profound and poetic?"
    "No," she said, "I can hardly understand a fcking word you are saying.

    "Breaking news. Donald Trump survives assassination attempt. The bullet went straight through the middle of his head, missing his brain by six feet.

    U. S. coronavirus testing tsar, Brett Giroir : " There's light at the end of the tunnel "

    He must be looking through the Hubble telescope.

    A man walks into a bar, and orders a beer. He drinks the beer, then stands on the bar, drops his pants and pees all over the place.

    The bar tender freaks out. "You dirty disgusting pig! How dare you come into my bar and urinate! I'll beat the shit out of you..."

    The man begins crying. "I'm sorry! Its ruining my life. I can't sleep. I do it every time I have a drink! It's worrying me to death, please don't hit me..."

    The bar tender takes pity. "Look, I have a brother who is a psychiatrist,here's his card, why don't you see him?"

    The man hugs the bartender, shakes his hand and leaves with a thousand thank yous...

    Six months later, the man walks into the bar, and orders a drink.

    The bartender says, "Okay, here you go... Wait! Weren't you that guy who.."

    "Yes, And I went and saw your brother. He is fantastic, I am completely cured."

    "Well, that's great. This beer is on the house."

    So the man drinks the beer, stands on the bar, drops his trousers and pees on the bar.

    "You bstard! I thought you said you were cured!"

    "I am! It doesn't bother me anymore..."

    Jane calls the doctor in a panic. "Doctor, doctor! My little Johnny swallowed a dozen aspirin. What should I do"?

    The doctor asked Jane, "Are you sure it was a dozen"?

    The frantic mother says, "Absolutely! Doctor, I'm scared to death"!

    The doctor tells the mother, "Calm down. Is little Johnny crying"?

    Jane says "No".

    "Is he sleeping" asks the doctor?

    "No" says Little Johnny's Mom.

    The doctor goes on with routine questions, "Is his color funny"?

    Again Jane says "No".

    "Did your Little Johnny throw up" asks the methodical doctor?

    "No" says the Little Johnny's worried Mom. "But I'm so scared. All that aspirin... shouldn't I do something"?

    To which the doctor says, "Try giving him a headache".

    Hey Abbers,

    91 & humid again. Tomorrow is supposed to be 93 & humid so no relief. Have I ever told you how muchI hate this weather? Hahha
    Just me & the animals today, peaceful! The guys are on their way back from Virginia, I’m getting text updates. Apparently the trip was kind of a waste time & money for the Amish guy. The materials he went to look at were not of his liking. He’s the guy who just did the deck work for us. Oh well.

    Det, I will be cooking these limas for sure. This old bod can’t handle raw food anymore, Lol
    Glad you’re getting lots of work, you are making a name for yourself
    Sorry about your friends relapsing, it’s tough times for sure. Grateful we know AL or any other substance is not the solution.

    PQ, if you want to try a little more humidity I’ll gladly send it your way. In my daughter’s words this morning - it’s disgusting outside!!
    Hope your weekend is fabulous.

    Pauly, I’ve tried a lot of vegan burgers, some better than others. Putting a good crust on them in the frying pan & loading them up with your fav toppings helps a lot. I can even get YB to eat them once in a while. Hope your weekend is good!

    Mick, you’re getting rain & I’m running around trying to water everything. Crazy weather patterns.
    Hope your day was good.

    Hello to Pie, Sam & Cyn!

    Have a nice night everyone!
